Probably the Best! Car I have ever owned !!
November 16, 2018
Hi All ,bit unusual as I live in the UK ,but boy do I love my Jeeps ,owned 3 now ,last 2 were the 4.0 ltr version .Im not shy in saying Im 58 today and have owned countless cars and motorcycles since I was 15 ,so wont bore you in details of lesser vehicles .
So my latest edition is the very frugal 20mpg ......4.7l V8 Grand Cherokee HO ,its black and chrome on a 2004 plate .Not sure where to start ,when I picked it up the owner had kept chickens in the back I think ? the whole car was filthy inside and out ,and yet under all the dirt was an honest car ,it drove like a dream ,the gearbox was the smoothest Ive come across and yet at 20mph running,hit the go faster pedal and all 4 wheels will spin !! Everything works ,the heated seats,A/C sunroof ,computer ,the list goes on .....and on .Sooo many extras and luxury leather for a very modest fee.This car was made for off road and to get to my favourite Photography places I need an off road vehicle ,not a pretend you can SUV .From time to time I take a 19ft kayak and put that on the top and No problems with the standard roof rack at 80mph ,pretty sure the boot can accomodate at least 3 dead ppl ,which is really useful lol or at least swallows up my mountainbike and camping gear .I especially like the lines of this Jeep ,its an Individual ,you can find it quickly in amongst the throngs of look a like Japanese or even European SUV,s why do all modern SUV.s look alike ? Nope I am proud to say as a Brit I own a piece of US history ,its reliable,it looks fantastic ,works for me on road and better off road,I will treasure it :) Oh by the way,my Jeep is a 2004 model with 95,454 mls on the clock and I do all the servicing ,oil changes ,brakes etc myself .
